Penhaligon’s – Trade Routes – Halfeti
Enigmatic and sensual
Splendid goods once arrived in London from Turkey: exotic flowers, spices, soft leather and precious fabrics.
The name of the perfume is derived from a small village in Turkey, where deep red, beguilingly scented roses bloom at the riverbank of the river Euphrates. The roses are mysterious and dark – and the blood-red color of their flowers is so intense that they sometimes almost seem to be black …
With Halfeti, perfumer Christian de Provenzano created a complex, woody-floral perfume. Radiant citrus and green sagebrush notes are the prelude for an opulent heart notes gala: Surrounded by a lush flower garden of jasmine, lavender, violets and lilies of the valley, rules the noble rose. The queen of all flowers is cheered by a royal court of precious spices (cardamom, cumin, nutmeg, saffron, cinnamon) and precious woods (cypress wood).
The dry-down is marked by smoky patchouli, cedar, amber and precious agarwood essence (oud) – and a velvety duet of leather and sandalwood, deliciously refined by musk and vanilla.
